A Heat Recovery Ventilation System, or HRV, is a type of ventilation system that helps improve indoor air quality while reducing energy consumption. These systems are designed to regulate the amount of fresh air entering a building while also retaining the energy from the warm air that is being expelled. As a result, HRVs can reduce the load on heating and cooling systems, leading to increased energy efficiency and lower energy bills.
As homes are made more energy efficient, they also become more airtight, resulting in stagnant indoor air. This is made even worse by appliances such as ovens, bathroom fans, mid-efficiency furnaces, and hot water tanks, which continuously exhaust air in the house. Stale air can also harbour health hazards such as bacteria, mould, and viruses. Unfortunately, opening a window isn’t always the best solution—especially on cold and hot days.
Luckily, HRVs can help solve this problem. They work by exchanging air to ensure that the incoming fresh air is heated by energy from the outgoing stale air. This ensures a continuous supply of fresh air without taxing your HVAC equipment.
